the greentrees! live in charlotte, nc!


 greetings all,
so we took a saturday
and traipsed around charlotte nc,
looking for places to set up and play...

i call it  guerilla style,
just bring the instruments
and create the show,
in this case the videos!

here's one from a playground.
called the "clear blue now"

todd ...vocals & guitar,
paul ..drums  & cool tie.

and sonya...brilliant fluid camera.  thank you.


we also graced the non existent stages
at a buddhist temple,
a waterspouting fountain,
a huge cat sculpture,
and
a famous sign at the heart of downtown charlotte.

but the first video:
here's  "clear blue now"........(lyrics below video)











***clear blue now***

sometimes i feel like i'm falling behind,
sometimes you're so far away, sometimes i feel that i'll never find
a soft and beautiful place,

             and so i walk these streets late at night,
             kick my heels up to the wind,
             rambling like a leaf, scattered and dry,
             from chapel to chapel i have been,

                          lost in memory and shadow,
                          lost in memory and shadow,
                          tossed and turning about,

                                         but i know what's mine,
                                         it's the everlasting shine,
                                         of the clear, the sweet, blue now.


sometimes the garden it's anywhere you are,
sometimes it's so far away,
i beg your pardon but i'll spent my time
looking for that beautiful place,

               and so i dream my dreams late at night,
               close my eyes and i cry,
               a shell of a man and i don't understand
               the seasons, the storms, the tides,

                              lost in memory and shadow,
                              lost in memory and shadow,
                              tossed and turning about,

                                                but i know what's mine,
                                                the everlasting shine,
                                                the clear, the sweet, blue now.

                                                 yes, i know what's mine,
                                                 it's your presence shining through,
                                                 into the clear, the sweet, blue now,
                                                 the now,
                                                 now,
                                                 now.
